Now Ive completed the 3 weeks I thought that I would share how it went.
As the exercise for me was linked to freeing up the imagination and challenging myself I decided to go with the flow.
Over the 3 weeks the tasks focused on doodling every day . Freeing up and recognizing the things the get in the way and learning to overcome them. Challenging yourself and putting yourself into different situations by going of on a physical journey, in a way that you wouldn’t normally do and keeping a journal.
Over the first week I decided to carry a small drawing pad with me to doodle on where ever I was.This was great fun but I must say hard to keep up the impetus.
In week 2 we were set the task to go out on a physical journey . again an interesting one to take us out of our comfort zone . I rarely sketch outside , also I decided to use a pen and so having to commit to using very light lines and darker ones to reinforce.
In week 3 we were asked to keep a journal and this is where I had problems, I am involved in so many creative practices that I found it difficult to find a way to record what I was doing. The thing to consider is whether or not to set up to different journals or try to manage with a folder with inserts or a mixture of both, I am not sure which one i will go for .. Ive decided to sign up for Janis follow on course which is a 30 day journaling exercise maybe by the end of it Ill have decided which I prefer.
